True Tail - fantasy flash series in development.

Just found out about this, looks like we've got a naive young feline squire, a burly bear knight, a cocky fox thief, a knife-wielding bunny bard, a priestess of indeterminate species kirin, and a (literally) hot-headed phoenix wizard.

I'll be watching for this, what about you?

edit: found Doh-Li's species on the tumblr.

Have been following this by proxy. Animation looks great. I know at least one person that will be voicing it.

Considering that only three characters had any lines in that trailer I'd say it's too soon to say.

Well, after digging through tge development blog to the character profiles (way down by the bottom) I'd say I'm leaning towards Doh-li.

She's a kirin, kind of an obscure mythological creature, at least in Western media, and seems to be a unique interpretation of it.  And she's an academic geek with a bit of OCD, kind of like me to be honest.

Wait, she's not based on Twilight Sparkle by any chance is she?

Yeah, found out about this through some MLP things. These guys did make their own MLP episode after all. Looks very promising to me. : )

I want to like it... I reaaally do.. but I'm getting this STRONG SUSPICION that it's gonna be a show made for kids and thus be full of really bland, single-dimensioned characters in super happy-sugary scenarios as most are these days. I mean, yeah it's cute and I love the trailer for it! But I feel that any expectation higher than "It's a simple story made for kids" is gonna be disappointed.

I hope I'm wrong, though! I mean, there's a necromancer, so...

edit: That MLP fact doesn't give me much hope though >.>

Was wondering if there was anyone else like this on the forums. I am far and away the same. My sense of humor is archetypal dirty furry (i.e. Ch's "Furry Force" shorts or BBC's "Mongrels" = best things ever) or comedy with biting social commentary, and when I am in the mood for film, I want something akin to "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" or "Black Swan..." dark art.

Cutesy for the sake of cute cannot hold my interest for a millisecond. I do like heroic stories, but the conflict must feel real, much more than just "believe in yourself." Indeed, the final pull for me towards Armello was the "Heroes and Horrors" trailer. Dark and powerful. Do whatever it takes to rule the land under your banner--stand for justice for all, display your enemies' heads on a pike or trade your soul to corrupt the world with death and agony. There is never a guarantee that pure intentions will ever win the throne, and I love that from a storytelling standpoint.

But yeah...we shall see how TT turns out.

Agreed. I'll probably watch an episode or two, but I'm not holding my breath on anything amazing.
